"The Veldt" is a science fiction short story written by Ray Bradbury. It involves a family living in an advanced home. The main part of the house is a nursery, which can become anything that anyone wants.
Mr. and Mrs. Hadley went to see George, a psychologist, to investigate the nursery in their home. They believe something is wrong with it.
In the nursery, George, Lydia, and Mr. and Mrs. Hadley were in Africa, where they saw lions eating something. Then, the lions walked towards them, preparing to attack. However, they escape before the lions can get them.
Mr. and Mrs. Hadley are getting concerned because they think the house is getting more important to the children than them. They also start worrying about things like if the children start thinking about death.
The parents decide to unplug the nursery. They think that the nursery is dangerous, and they want their kids to experience things without technology.
George recommends unplugging the entire house and letting the kids do things themselves. The kids do not want that, so they trick the parents into coming in the nursery and lock them in there with the lions.
